We all have different priorities with the 24 hours a day we are given. I like to think I make good use of my time because of the many LISTS I make. Most of the time I am very “productive” driven. I have a list. I want to get things accomplished.
Sometimes I have lists written down. Sometimes they are in my head. Sometimes I just say “let’s wing it!” hahaha. And some days………..get ready……..yes………..I say let’s just relax and enjoy the time!
On days like that, I may sit on my porch swing and just listen to the birds. I may write. I may read. I may watch a movie (sometimes a Christmas movie in July) or I may call a friend or meet a friend for lunch. I love watching sitcoms Reba and Everybody Loves Raymond and King of Queens. I love looking at Pinterest and getting ideas for decorating for gift giving. I love riding my bike. I love getting up early to blog or read and spend my quiet time alone.
Everyone has different ways they wish to spend their days – some productive and some not. And who are we to judge? People may think sitting on the porch swing doing NOTHING is a waste of time. Some people may think watching TV is a waste of time. Some people may think getting on the computer is a waste of time. That’s your call.
But I can tell you what’s not a waste of time………..spending time with the One who created time; the One who created YOU and ME; the One who created everything in this entire universe. God doesn’t waste our time. Time spent with Him whether in worship, quiet time alone, reading the Bible, studying His word, praying or doing things that bring Him glory are NOT a waste of time! You be the judge of how you spend your time so that when we stand before THE JUDGE we can hear “well done good and faithful servant.”
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8: A time for everything!
